In fact the Harlech pedestrian gates has everything you’ve come to expect with one of our gates, put simply not only does it look great but we make it properly too (that would be the three generations of joinery know how we have)!
Available as either a pair of driveway gates or smaller garden gate, our Harlech gate features a stunning diminishing ‘underswept’ head which frames an elegant open vision area, divided by vertical uprights.
The Harlech single, shown above, is the Unsorted Scandinavian Redwood (Softwood), fully boarded version. Hardwood versions (Prime European Oak, Meranti & Idigbo) as well as modified Accoya Softwood versions are also available and the gate is also manufactured as an open boarded gate and what is more the Harlech is also manufactured as a pair of driveway gates and smaller single garden gate.
